This was my application article. I'm sorry if it's a bit long but it honestly could have been a lot longer.
If you don't know what double standards are... well, you're about to. It's everywhere in K-Pop, you've inevitably seen it. And most of the time it is completely uncalled for. There are the girls who decide to hate a female idol simply because she stood too close to her bias. Some hate women for their choice of clothing which, obviously, is completely absurd. The best of these fangirls though, in my opinion, are the ones who claim that they don't hate all female idols, they like Amber! As if that counts.
Examples I've encountered In the past:
Hyuna's Bubble Pop MV. The most common comments you will see are that she's a “try-hard slut” for doing overly provocative dance moves in such little clothing. Of course, a fangirl's male bias ripping his shirt off and hip-thrusting in your face is more than perfectly acceptable.
Sulli made an entry in her journal when she was nine years old. NINE. “I know I'm pretty but I do not know why people why the other people think I'm pretty.” The comments on the entry call her rude and conceited.
Suzy takes lots of pictures of herself. The comments, all by fangirls, say that she's a conceited camwhore. A lot of the comments even said she was too ugly to be taking that many pictures of herself.
Super Junior's Heechul, a full grown man, constantly makes arrogant statements that he's the most handsome man in the world, among other things. He posts so many pictures of himself that his fans can't even keep up with them. The comments for him call him a unique idol, praising him for how original he is. They think he's funny for posting so many pictures of himself. Yeah, funny. Suzy is a conceited bitch and Heechul is funny. Okay.
Krystal jokingly told her skating instructor that she was going to be his diet coach. I saw so many comments calling her a rude bitch without even watching the clip to see that she meant it as a joke.
Key told KARA’s Nicole to lose weight. Just straight up said it. His fans defended him by saying he was just being honest and there's nothing wrong with that.
Krystal makes a lighthearted joke and is an evil bitch but Key tells someone they're fat and he's an honest person. I see.
There are literally hundreds of examples of things like this. I don't understand how a girl's mind is producing thoughts like these and somehow thinking they're logical ideas.
Girls tend to harbor hatred for one another without fully realizing it. Even when girls are young, they naturally think bad things about each other without noticing that they’re being mean. It’s almost something natural, it’s actually hard to avoid. Animal-like instincts, perhaps. Men are territorial, women are... bitchy.
When people see girls, they judge them more harshly than guys due to outer appearances. I don’t mean whether they’re hot or not, although sometimes that seems to spark jealousy, considering girls in the spotlight that aren’t called pretty receive considerably less hate than those who are often praised for their beauty (Hyoyeon vs. Yoona, Amber vs. Krystal). When people see a girl and hear her for the first time, it’s easy to think “wow, she seems really bitchy.” That seems to happen quite a bit, right? People rarely get to know a girl before they judge her. Sometimes, when you take the time to know someone, you might realize that you were wrong. Girls will easily like a guy because of his charms from the beginning but they will often shun a girl due to first impressions.
However natural these feelings may be, fangirls always seem to take it to a whole new level. You'd think girls would support each other rather than shitting all over each other for silly reasons.
